Otterman and Jon Sigurdsson against a Rhizophora in Lim Chu Kang (LK1) mangroves. Notice how our heads both tilt in sympathy with the trunk? Picture by Cynthia Lee. This photo for all his old students out there. He flew back to Iceland earlier today.
I first visited mangroves with "Siggy" in 1988. Still learning stuff from him (and others) even now; and that's one of the best parts about it. We were challenged by the exceptional heat and humdity that morning which made me really reluctant to venture out again on Sunday, but I had to.
Ventured out in more heat and even that high-tide water of the neap tide was hot! The effort of that trip had me out for the count on Monday, and I've decided to skip the Wed ride to recover frm that and all the late nights.
